Annotation

Heaven as a eutopia. No sex. No property. Reincarnation. Each person enters heaven with the understanding with which they left life, and work in heaven involves helping other souls to advance. There are souls who try to stop others advancing. Hell is described as a meaningless round of pleasure that becomes less and less satisfying.
